Recipe - Cookies

I made "split batch cookies" with a little help from the thatlilfoodkid as as we wanted some with chunks of chocolate and raisins and the others with chocolate chips and raisins.

These were big, soft and chewy!

Ingredients (makes approx. 18)

250g plain flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/2 tsp  salt
170g unsalted butter, melted
200g dark brown soft sugar
100g caster sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1 egg yolk
100g chocolate chips
100g chocolate chunks
100g raisins

1. Preheat the oven to 170 C / Gas mark 3. Line baking sheets with parchment.
Sift together the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt; set aside.

2. In a bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and caster sugar until combined well.

3.Beat in the vanilla, egg and egg yolk until light and creamy.

4. Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended.  Split the mixture into two bowls. Stir in the chocolate chips and half the raisins by hand using a wooden spoon in one bowl and the chocolate chunks and the other half of the raisins in the other.

5. Drop cookie dough onto the prepared baking trays, with each cookie around a walnut size of dough. I used an ice cream scoop. Do not flatten the dough. Cookies should be about 8cm apart.

6. Bake for 14 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted. Cool on baking trays for a few minutes.

7. Before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

8. Enjoy!
